Mission Statement

The mission of The Horse Rescue, Relief & Retirement Fund, Inc. (HRRRFI) is to improve the quality of life for all horses and thereby improve the lives of people through their human band with horses. We are committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of horse and equine suffering from abuse and to the successful retirement of working horses and equine. We also aim to improve the public awareness and knowledge of the standards of care necessary to keep equines healthy and safe.


Our Mission and Philosophy is Reflected in our Programs

Equines have an ability to improve the quality of life, health and well being for people with disabilities. Through therapeutic and enjoyable equine activities, riders learn horsemanship that stimulates physical, mental and emotional growth. Our "Dreams of Courage" program uses the rescued horses to help disabled children and adults improve their lives through the movement and involvement with these horses. On the back of a horse, a disabled person becomes equal and rides beside able-bodied persons. Working with horses can also give a therapeutic effect on people struggling with psychological problems.


In our ongoing attempt to establish equine rescue services. It became apparent that the level of equine knowledge and care amongst equine owners often does not measure up to the standard of care necessary to keep a horse healthy and safe. The HRRRFI offers ongoing educational classes and clinics for horse owners and enthusiasts, as well as for our volunteers.


Our primary goal is to save the horses. We do rescues at all times, but particularly in times of despair and crisis. Our organization is made up of volunteers with a mission to stop horses from being sent to slaughter or abuse. With that in mind, we have made the commitment that any horse send here will not be sold or sent to slaughter. We will, however, have equines put down humanely, if the quality of life is suffering.

Background

The Horse Rescue, Relief and Retirement Fund, Inc. was created to address the urgent need for rescue services and equine public education. We are an all-volunteer organization operating solely on tax-deductible donations to our 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation.
